95 yj 4 cylinder 11.5k miles value?

I recent purchased a 95 yj 4 cylinder 2.5l manual transmission complete with half doors, soft top, hard doors, and hard top, stock tires and also a set of 32 inch a/t tires included in purchase. The yj has zero body rust and extremely minimal surface rust underneath. The jeep was kept in storage all these years and driven about once a month. It's Black with tan interior. I bought it with 9.5k miles and now it has 11.5k miles.(yes I mean 11,500). My question is how much is something like this worth? Everything is stock except the 32 inch tires I have on it right now.

As much as someone will pay for it.

You probably would not be able to sell it for as much as you think. YJs are not collector vehicles and the person who buys it will likely either drive it or make it into an offroad vehicle, although the first option is more likely being so clean. I wouldn't pay much more for a low mileage YJ than I would for one with higher mileage because my intention would be to drive it. Are you looking to sell it after 2k miles or just curious?

Just curious honestly. I love it. It's always been kind of a dream car for me. Just curious what kind of a demand there is for low milage on a yj is good condition.

Very low mileage can have a negative connotation. Vehicles not driven far enough to heat the oil to operating levels will incur abnormal wear very quickly. Vehicles not driven at least weekly will have dried out seals and other items. A regularly driven vehicle driven very long distances on highways have been known to go over 100k miles with little or no engine wear. A salesman's car that travels 75k annually can easily go 300,000 miles requiring nothing but oil changes and tires.
It is possible that the low mileage on your vehicle will attract some buyers, but probably not as much as you would think.
Adam013085 asked a good question. If you are interested in how much this Jeep is worth after 2000 miles of driving, are you thinking of selling it and if so, why?

I would say it would worth a little less than you paid for it.
